Transformative Negotiation: A Mindful Approach

Negotiation is a fact of life. Transformative negotiation goes beyond the win-win transaction by acknowledging our connection and interdependence, focusing on skillful interactions. Author of The Transformative Negotiator (2015), Michèle Huff brings her real-world negotiating experience and her mindful approach. In this seminar, she will explore how to:

1) bring mindfulness to communications (listening and speaking); 
2) prime creativity, including starting with why, overcoming gaps (cultural, linguistic, gender, generational), using leverage and frames; and
3) reduce emotionalism (and other blocking mechanisms) by educating, cultivating patience and compassion.

Learning Objectives

•    Effectively communicate (listening, speaking, meaning, cognitive bias)
•    Identify gaps and close them (knowledge, cultural, linguistic, gender, generational)
•    Use frames and levers (think in new boxes, change perspective, problem solve)
•    Have difficult conversations (collaborate, share information, manage expectations)
•    Reduce emotions and conflict (cultivate compassion, adapt to power differentials)
